Porto bifanas are a traditional Portuguese dish originating from the city of Porto. Bifanas are thin slices of pork loin that are marinated in a mixture of garlic, white wine, and spices, and then pan-fried until golden brown. They are typically served on a bread roll and topped with mustard, hot sauce, and/or sautéed onions.
Bifanas are a popular street food in Porto and can be found at cafes, food stalls, and restaurants throughout the city. They are often accompanied by a side of French fries and a cold beer.
Porto bifanas are considered a staple of Portuguese cuisine and are enjoyed by locals and visitors alike. They are a great option for a quick and tasty meal on the go, or for a casual lunch or dinner.
- Put olive oil, rolled garlic cloves, paprika, pepper sauce and bay leaf in a pan and mix.
- Turn on the heat and let the garlic saute a little to release flavor but don't let it burn.
- Add the wine, beer, whiskey, port wine and a pinch of salt.
- When it boils, add the meat and mix it well in the sauce.
- Drizzle with half of the lemon juice, add the piri piri sauce and the remaiding lemon juice to the pan.
- Let it simmer for about 45 minutes, so that the meat is tender, if you see that you need more sauce, add some more beer or white wine (do not add water).
- Before removing from the heat, check the seasoning.
